Parks Creates "Allentown Active" Calendar

Parks Creates

The Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation is expanding its “Recreation at Home” virtual programming series with the addition of an “Active Allentown” calendar.

Throughout 2021, on the 1st of each month Parks and Recreation staff will debut a monthly calendar full of a variety of activities for participants to enjoy.

This program encourages school aged children to become more active by taking small steps towards a healthier lifestyle. Each day participants are asked to try a different physical, mental, or emotional activity with a household family member and/or adult supervision.

“Our goal is to emphasize that recreation can occur anywhere, whether at home, in your neighborhood or in one of the city’s many park spaces,” said Parks & Recreation Director Karen El-Chaar.  “Additionally, we want to promote the various ways individuals and families can lead healthy lifestyles. Being active goes well beyond just physical activity.”

The “Active Allentown” calendar and all “Recreation at Home” content can be viewed on the department’s social media pages @ AllentownParksandRec and on the department website at  

Additionally, the department encourages community members to subscribe to the new YouTube Channel at Allentown PA Parks and Recreation to access “Recreation at Home” video content.

For additional information and resources, residents and visitors may contact the Parks & Recreation office at 610-437-7757 and/or follow the department on social media via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @AllentownParksandRec as well as subscribing to the new YouTube Channel, Allentown PA Parks and Recreation.
